1 March 2005

The U.S. FAA is questioning British officials about a British Airways Boeing 747 that continued to the U.K. from Los Angeles on three engines. After an engine failed shortly after takeoff, the flight crew decided to continue to London but had to make an priority landing in Manchester. U.S. aviation safety officials said the decision return to LAX raises concern about the potential impact of a new European Union law that requires European carriers to reimburse passengers for substantial delays.
